The holidays, food and exercise

We are smack-dab in the middle of the holiday season. You know, when Thanksgiving runs into Christmas, and Christmas runs into New Years. Thank God I don’t have a birthday to consider during this time. Why? Because during the holiday season I like to cook and I like to bake, but mostly, I like to eat. My holidays seem to be centered around food and that is fine with me. However, I realized that if I am going to be fine with all that, then I also have to be fine with my annual weight gain… hmmmm… ya, not really.

This year, I hope that things have changed somewhat. Don’t get me wrong. I am still cooking, baking and eating, but this year I have added jogging to the mix. What does this mean in the long run? Well, only time will really tell, but I think it can’t be a bad thing. I sure have been feeling a lot better about myself lately, and that’s always good. If I still end up gaining weight during this festive time, I will re-look at what I need to do with my diet. I know I probably should be doing that anyway, but the way I see it is I am starting an exercise routine that will hopefully become a habit in my life. Right now, I am focussed on that and seem to be staying the course. I don’t want to add a new diet regimen on top of a new exercise plan. In my thinking, (Yes, perhaps slightly skewed.)  I feel that doing that would set myself up for failure, and I certainly don’t want or need that.
